Hrm. Is there any particular reason why netbase can't suggest or
recommend net-tools and just call nameif if it is appropriate?

While I understand some of the problems of one tool calling a program
packaged in another tool in its initscript, it seems kind of pointless
to have a separate init script just to handle this relatively optional
behavior, when it can so easily be handled in the least astonishing[1]
init script, /etc/init.d/networking.

Marco: As you reassigned this bug, any specific problems with calling
it from /etc/init.d/networking beyond the fact that nameif exists
